TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucson police say a man who threatened himself in the middle of the roadway on the city's southside Wednesday morning has been taken into custody.

Police say it started when officers attempted to pull the car over, believing the driver is a wanted man. The driver refused to stop, ultimately resulting in a standoff near Irvington Road and 12th Avenue.

Responding officers negotiated with the suspect to surrender himself, police said.

Traffic was restricted in the area, but the roads reopened by 2 p.m.
